COMING THIS FALL: Through the Woods Preschool!

Check out our (FREE) Preview Days!

At Through the Woods Preschool, we believe that children are intrinsically motivated to learn, and that they do so by exploring the world around them. We aim to foster curiosity, to guide rather than compel, and to provide room for possibility and adventure rather than attempt to constrain children’s interests to fit within a certain curriculum. Children ages 3-5 years old will explore, play, discover and learn, while  engaging with nature and the wonderment of Creation and the Creator, in their outdoor classroom nestled in the towering trees of The Firs/Fircreek Woods.

Program Distinctives Include:

  • Nature immersion
  • Small class sizes – personalized learning
  • Fostering sustainable culture
  • Child-driven curriculum
  • Play-based experiential learning

“Whatever shape nature takes, it offers each child an older, larger world separate from parents. Unlike television, nature does not steal time; it amplifies it.” Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods.

Program Details:

  • Starting:  September 3, 2019
  • Ages:  3-5 years old (must be potty trained)
  • Hours:  8:00 am – 11:30 am (we are taking names of those who would be interested in an extended preschool day, to determine if this is a need in our community)

Days & Rates:

  • 2-Day Option – $195/month
  • 3-Day Option – $280/month
  • 5-Day Option – $525/month

Please note that there is a 2-day/week minimum. You may choose which days you are interested in and we will do our best to accommodate, though class sizes are limited.

The preschool calendar will follow the Bellingham School District Calendar for holidays and school closures.

Join us this summer!


If you’re looking for a fun, safe place for your kids to spend the day outside (Fircreek is a weekly day camp; registration is by the week), enjoy exciting activities, new friendships, and learn about the love of Jesus Christ, Fircreek is for you! Weeks are filling quickly.


If your child is looking for a bit more adventure, Firwood may be your choice! They’ll spend a week or half-week along the picturesque shores of Lake Whatcom, building new relationships, trying new things, learning about the Lord, and spending time in God’s spectacular creation. Spots also fill quickly for Camp Firwood.
